Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 274 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Use it all the time I decided to try the shimmering version of the mistral veil this time around and decided I love the slight shimmer and sparkle it gives my skin. 01/02/2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I use the original shade and I love it. It completes the look. I wouldn't wear make-up without it. 12/23/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect finish This product sets the look. Balancing and simple, this fine powder is finishing and easy. I use it everyday for a soft, healthy glow. 12/15/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Original Minetal Veil Mineral veil is like the cherry on the top of a sundae! When using Bare Minerals foundation you could go without it but it makes your skin/complexion look so much better without making you look like you put on additional makeup if that makes sense. It just makes you look healthier with a slight glow. It also makes my makeup last all day and I'm talking like a 12-16 hour day. 12/08/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mineral Veil great product. very light and nice finish . used for years. 11/23/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sets My Concealer-Love Product I have used the Hydrating Mineral Veil for years. I usually just use it to set my undereye concealer. so nothing smudges. I don't really feel the need to "set" my entire face so a jar lasts me a very, very long time and it doesn't seem to ever go bad. I do have an issue with the previous review because after I read her review about the cornstarch, I looked at the ingredients on my jar (which is at least 2 years old or maybe even older) and it listed cornstarch as one of the ingredients. Not the 1st one, but it was there. Not a problem for me.... 11/03/2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not the same mineral veil - Cornstarch is the first ingredient This was an award winner at one time. NO LONGER. Ladies, most of the Bare Minerals products now contain cornstarch as the first ingredient. And that includes the original mineral veil we all loved. 10/19/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love My Veil I love Mineral Veil. Less really is more. I use just a tiny bit on my forehead and cheeks, which makes my skin look soft and glowing. I avoid using it around my nose, because I do wear glasses and it does "separate/clump" a teeny bit. When it does, I just reapply with my Ready touch up Veil. 09/16/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mineral Veil Lovely, light, enhancing .... very pretty finishing touch!! 08/10/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Daily I use this every single day after I apply my foundation. I love the glow it gives my face. I won't wear makeup if I don't have my Veil! 07/24/2016

Hello,

Thank you for your question. The applying the Mineral Veil goes on after applied your foundation, blush, etc. This is to minimizing lines, absorbing oils, and softening your complexion, it gives you a flawless finish.

Answer: 
It depends on the shade of powder and the amount of application. I am 46 and take really good care of my skin. I hydrate every morning and night. I still have some irritating wrinkles! I use Bare Minerals and love it. I think that any makeup can make a person's wrinkles or flaws look bad. It depends on Shade and application. I think the Mineral Veil gives even mature skin a nice glow and doesn't magnify wrinkles any more than any other makeup.

Details: 
I just finished up a HUGE container of "Tinted Feather Light Mineral Veil" that my mother in law gave me years ago. I immediately stopped using my regular Mineral Veil once I tried it. It has a subtle sparkle and gives truly, utterly flawless coverage over my medium beige powder foundation. I want to replace it, but there isn't a Mineral Veil by the same name. The new "Tinted" Mineral Veil is described as "feather light," but the "Illuminating" Mineral Veil is described as having that subtle sparkle. Do I need to use both to achieve the same look as my old Mineral Veil?!

Answer: 
Have you tried Mineral Veil? I use it as a last step because it seems to pull your face together and just kind of perfect it! Like airbrushing or filter effect for your complexion. I don't get that same result from Radiances. Those are more like a highlighter, give more of like a glow which I like but wouldn't call it a can't-live-without. MV definitely is!

I have VERY oily skin and I'm still in high school, so it's embarrassing to "casually" wipe the excess oil on your nose or forehead. (I get oily mainly in the "t-zone"). How long does this product mattify you're skin and what's the best way to use this so the mattification lasts longer?

Answer: 
I have very oily skin as well and the translucent mineral veil really helps! It last around 6 hours before I have to touch up my t-zone area from being shiny. I would recommend using the oil control primer, mineral foundation in matte, and then the translucent mineral veil.

Answer: 
I also have oily skin, so i have found that after i use my primer i buff on this mineral veil then my foundation then the mineral veil again. i usually have oily problems through the day at my hair line, and around my nose, but it seems to help keep it at bay. but remember honey, every one is different. i would atleast give it a try, but for me it seems to work all day.

I've tried the tinted and it left a dull layer on my skin. I then tried the illuminating mineral veil and really loved how it left a glow, but the glow is very light for my medium to tan complexion. Any advice? Should I try to mix the two together?
